Consortium are interested in buying Manston Airport

A Kent MP says he has been contacted by a consortium interested in buying Manston Airport.

Last week, the site's owner said it could close after a 45 day consultation leaving 150 people without jobs.

North Thanet's Roger Gale says a potential buyer has shown interest in taking over the running of the airport.

Already, more than 11,000 people have signed a petition to keep the airport running.
